Six more DLC releases will follow in the months ahead.
Square Enix has announced the first of seven DLC packs for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Titled The Forge, the DLC will be released on Nov. 13 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as part of the season pass and sold separately for $4.99 USD.
In the DLC, players will explore the lava-covered titular Forge to uncover secrets and learn more about a friend of Lara Croft’s ancient legacy.
The new challenge tomb can be played in either solo or co-op mode and completing it will reward players with the Grenadier skill, Brocken outfit, and Umbrage 3-80 weapon.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s six other pieces of DLC will release monthly in the subsequent months following November. Square Enix said they’ll include more new tombs, items, modes, and narrative side quests.
In our review, IGN awarded Shadow of the Tomb Raider a 9.0, writing that it, “manages to satisfactorily tread the line between high-concept fun and grounded character exploration.”
Shortly after release, players discovered that Shadow of the Tomb Raider “mistakenly” included an alternate ending.
